    This penny is in bad shape but I'm not so sure everything is post mint! I was curious to see what you guys think about it!

    Agree, damaged post mint, interesting to speculate about what may have happened to it but still only worth 1 cent. Welcome to CT btw ;)

    If you mean it, buy one of these, they’re like $15-20. Start reading it, then start asking your questions. We’re here to fill in the gaps. Getting started is as simple as that.

    ...looks like it’s been dropped, worn and used as a screwdriver. The RedBook is by far the best place to start, but you should also go to doubleddie.com, John Wexler’s website, and read the articles there...especially “How Dies Are Made”. It will help you immensely going forward...after all, you did say you want to learn...jmho...Spark
